ECHELON Smart with SynergyDrive

The speed of the system is enhanced with three technologies: SynergyDrive, IR-RAPID, and AutoExam.

The content on this page is intended to healthcare professionals and equivalents.

Experience enhanced SPEED with our SynergyDrive

Our "SynergyDrive" offers enhanced speed during MRI examination without reducing image quality while maintaining quietness.

ECHELON Smart with SynergyDrive


HighSpeed Imaging Technology

IP-RAPID is high-speed imaging using iterative processing, reducing scan times by up to 60% while maintaining image quality comparable to conventional imaging methods.

AutoExam*1 *2

Positioning, imaging and post-processing are all completed in one step. The examination time is shortened by simplifying operations.


  • *1 Option
  • *2 This system automates, not diagnos. Images need to be checked by the operator.
  • *3 Depending on imaging conditions


Our SmartECO effectively reduces power consumption

A compact scan room with an MRI unit with less heat discharge also reduces the air conditioning requirements of the examination and equipment rooms. The energy saving function together with the reduction of heat discharge can reduce running costs by 17%*4.

Our hardware technologies for enhancing image quality

Workflow Coil System

Receiver coils support ease of patient setting and offer superb image quality

The number of receiver coils that must be set prior to the examination is minimized to reduce replacement time and effort. With a system designed for ease of use and with the adoption of special receiver coils for individual regions, significant reduction in examination time is attained whilst maintaining high image quality.
